Book Review & Giveaway: The Three Little Horses and the Big Bully Donkey by Liana-Melissa Allen

The Three Little Horses and the Big Bully DonkeyAbout the Book

A tale (based on the “Three Little Pigs”) about three little horse brothers who suddenly lose their house that is destroyed by a fire. The young horses are totally alone and thrust into the reality of having to depend on themselves and each other against a bully donkey, who wanders the forest wrecking homes and bullying the other animals. This warm-hearted tale promotes strong values and has a fun premise. Written and humorously illustrated in vivid color throughout by Liana-Melissa Allen, the story is a proven winner for reading aloud to children.

My Review

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

The Three Little Horses and the Big Bully Donkey is a children’s book based on the three little pigs but instead there are three little horses and a big bully donkey instead of a big bad wolf.

This is a cute story with great pictures. It teaches children that taking the easy way is not always the best way, as well as the importance of family and friends. It would be a good story to read aloud.

This is definitely a story for young children will enjoy.
